Galena Park North Shore defensive tackle Kriss Ross, a key emerging Texas Longhorns target, has pushed his decision back, setting a new timetable to announce on March 23.

On Tuesday, Ross provided a time for his decision.

In mid-January, Ross received his first big offer from Baylor. Since then, he’s picked up offers from Oklahoma, Texas, LSU, and USC, as well as Arizona State.

Then, in the midst of big 2022 pledges for the Longhorns from California quarterback Maalik Murphy and Arlington Martin linebacker Trevell Johnson in mid-February, Ross announced his four finalists — Baylor, LSU, Oklahoma, and Texas.

However, with the 6’3, 280-pounder taking more time to make his decision, the Trojans will also figure into his decision with the recent addition of former Longhorns Director of Recruiting Bryan Carrington.

Right now, Texas looks like the favorite thanks to the early efforts by Bo Davis, who returned to Austin recently after serving on Mack Brown’s coaching staff from 2010 to 2013. The Horns currently hold all six 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions for Ross.

Murphy seemed to confirm that belief with a late-night tweet.

Unranked by the services when his recruitment took off, Ross is now a consensus three-star prospect ranked as the No. 430 player nationally and the No. 35 defensive tackle, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
